The Enchanting Element of Music

As compelling as the original video, this live performance of 'Pass This On' recreates the same conditions but in a real life situation.

This is a brilliant live act that reflects the genius of The Knife. There is an underlying eroticism in the video that almost makes you feel dirty and voyeuristic watching it.

RA Top live acts of 2011

Resident Advisor just released their top 20 live acts of 2011, as voted by fans.

I have a lot of catching up to do. Especially with some of the gentlemen in the top 10. Nicolas Jaar, in particular, is going to be huge.

Snapshots of a modern revolution

I bumped into this person's photoblog today. She (I believe it's a 'she' we're talking about) has managed to get into the heart of the uprisings in Greece and capture moments of immense beauty, ugliness, pain, happiness and, above all, truth.

Dream-like pop sequences, warm chords and ethereal voices - the trademark sound of French duo Air, who have been commissioned to provide a new soundtrack for George Melies' 'La Voyage Dans Le Lune' (Trip to the Moon). They have expanded this soundtrack into an album. Seven Stars, featuring Beach House's Victoria Legrand, is a new song from the album.

What a treat.

(Although, I must confess, the chord progression is a little reminiscent of David Gray's 'This Year's Love')
